Chris Mooney: The Republican Brain


Published June 6, 2012
Topics Documentary


Baffled about how that hard core right wing conservative in your life can't seem to accept the reality of everything from climate change to evolution to corporate rule?  Ever notice how with people of this ilk, facts don't matter and what's worse, the more proof you give them the more it seems shore up their delusional belief systems? We like to think that they are just the victims of Fox News and religious and ideological indoctrination.  We fanaticize that if we could only somehow get them to a professional deprogrammer, they would finally get a grip and join us progressives as part of the solution instead of the problem. Maybe we should stop wasting our time.  A growing body of evidence illustrates that this may be delusional thinking on our part and science writer Chris Mooney explains why.  Dissecting the psychology behind Republicans’ refusal to accept things that most experts agree on, Mooney, author of The Republican War on Science and the his latest The Republican Brain, discovers that conservatives and liberals don’t just have different ideologies; they are in fact wired differently.  Join us for an illuminating and myth defying journey into the science of the Republican Brain.
